On Wednesday afternoon, Ben Fisher was just working on some things at his family’s home in Richmond. He hadn’t yet been notified that he was selected by the Florida Marlins in the Major League Draft. “My dad told me,” Fisher said. “I didn’t get the call until after I had been drafted. He saw it on his phone. So, that was kind of cool.”
Madison Southern scored five times in the third and stunned long-tme rival and nemesis #7 Madison Central (24-10) in the opening game of the 44th District Tournament at Berea College.
Lexington Catholic senior Dave Mueller was 1-for-1 at the plate on Monday. His lone at-bat resulted in an RBI single that lifted the Knights over defending 11th Region champion Madison Central, 6-5, after eight innings at Lafayette.
Some timely hitting and a solid bullpen effort helped the No. 8 Knights turn the tables on the No. 4 Indians after losing 7-2 at home 12 days ago and trailing 3-0 early on Monday. Mueller’s single in the top of the eighth got into center field and scored courtesy runner Trenton Neuer. The throw to home beat him but the catcher couldn’t apply the tag.
